I grew up in Buda, TX (very small town), however I went to church all my life in Austin (quite a bit larger than Buda). That shaped a lot of who I am today. I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX in 1998 with a BBA in Marketing. I married my beautiful wife Erica Jan 9, 1999. We moved to Taos, NM and lived there for a couple years, and then moved back to Austin where I worked at my home church as Children’s Pastor. We have 3 kids: Kennady, Jude, and Avery. We have a very strong family thanks to the power of God in our life. Our daughter, Kennady, was born with severe special needs. You can check out her story here.
In 2003, we started PromiseLand San Marcos church with around 30 people and today it has grown into a 1000 member, thriving community of believers.
I am passionate about bridging the gap between people and Jesus. That shows up all over the scale from people who have never heard about Jesus to people that have been to church all their lives. I am also passionate about helping other pastors.
A verse that sums up my ministry and life is found in Isaiah 58:12
And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt;
you shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
you shall be called the repairer of the breach,
the restorer of streets to dwell in.
